While it runs a bit slow, Intacto doesn't bore, and the ending is interesting to see played out, if not a bit predictable.

one of those European genre films that look much superior to Hollywood even when they are obviously below the standards of genre excellence

Rarely is a film about the supernatural as thoughtful and affecting as Intacto; even more rarely does that kind of film attract an audience.

Though at times the rules of this luck-stealing underworld aren't exactly clear, and the plot becomes a bit mired in its own cleverness, Intacto is an intriguing notion.

I got a headache watching this meaningless downer.

Like a sprinter competing in his first distance race: It bursts forth with tremendous energy, sustains itself for quite a while, loses steam near the end but finishes ahead of most of the pack.

Fresnadillo has something serious to say about the ways in which extravagant chance can distort our perspective and throw us off the path of good sense.

The movie doesn't generate a lot of energy. It is dark, brooding and slow, and takes its central idea way too seriously.

It's one thing to enjoy this movie, it's quite another to take it as seriously as it takes itself.

So fiendishly cunning that even the most jaded cinema audiences will leave the auditorium feeling dizzy, confused, and totally disorientated. Not to mention absolutely refreshed.

There's an elegant, understated calm to the movie's thrills.

A clever high-concept in search of a better movie.

The casting of von Sydow ... is itself Intacto's luckiest stroke.
February 22, 2003
A fascinating, dark thriller that keeps you hooked on the delicious pulpiness of its lurid fiction.
February 21, 2003
Nothing if not hip, but its questions are more coffee-shop hypothetical than genuinely profound.

I admired Intacto more than I liked it, for its ingenious construction and the way it keeps a certain chilly distance between its story and the dangers of popular entertainment.
